      Under the hood of <http://www.ellisisland.org/> www.ellisisland.org

      For those with an technical interest of what makes the Ellis Island
      database tick, I have pulled together some of the details below.


      Launched, April 17, 2001. First day 27,000 queries per second.
      Needless to say, system was overloaded.

      After a quick re-work, the configuration was upgraded as follows:

      Oracle database server, two-node cluster using HP Proliant 580 Quad
      Processor Servers, Oracle 9i RAC cluster, Linux 7.2
      25 Web Servers - HP Proliant DL360, Windows 2000 Advanced Server
      Two HP ML530 application servers (presumably e-commerce)
      Two Mail Servers running Cobalt RaQ

      HP Procurve 8000 serves as backbone
      Cisco Catalyst 3600 Router
      Radware Web Server Director (WSD)-Pro+
      1.5 Terrabyte of Storage, Network Appliance F820 filer, 3 Terrabyte
      capacity
      Offsite web hosting by Webcentric


      Recent Statistics
      1.5 terrabyte available storage including 500GB of images and a 50GB
      main database
      70 million visitors/month
      25 million passenger records
      40,000 hits per hour from new (2003) link to AOL home page
